Thread Name: Obit: Johnny Cash passes (1932-2003)
Subject: RE: Obit: Johnny Cash passes
Hard to find something to say that can properly say how important he was--

I grew up listening to country music as well rock'n'roll, and he was both. When the sixties and Vietnam came along, in a lot of people's minds, Rock went one way and country went the other--When Johnny took a stand on the war, suddenly it became OK for the under thirty crowd to play, listen and love that stuff again--
